Editors' review

Although it's billed as a photo editor, FileStream's Image Broadway does a lot more than touch up your photos. A recent (and steep) price cut makes Image Broadway a more affordable alternative to Adobe's Photoshop Elements, but it does have a few drawbacks. You can try Image Broadway (with limits) for free.

Pros

Lots of tools: Image Broadway isn't just a photo retoucher; it's a full-featured graphics editor with drawing, painting, filters, effects, layers, paths, and more.

Familiar face: Like most graphics editors, Image Broadway's layout and tools resemble Photoshop's but with its own touches, such as the expandable right sidebars.

Easy to learn: A good Help file illustrated with examples makes Image Broadway easy to pick up.

Cons

Tool issues: Some tools didn't work as promised. For instance, we couldn't use the Lasso tool to drag copied selections on the image, even with our Wacom pen and tablet.

Onscreen instruction is lacking: Despite the good Help file, the descriptions for the tools explain only how to use them: "Design Brush: Click and drag." It would be better to describe what they do.

Bottom Line

Image Broadway is an affordable alternative to Photoshop and its many imitators. Though a reduced price makes Image Broadway more attractive, it faces stiff competition from freeware graphics tools, so try before you buy.

Editors' note: This is a review of the trial version of FileStream Image Broadway 6.0.

    "Stupid (You 'll loose your time with it)"

    November 19, 2008   |   By TheoMK

    Version: Image Broadway 5.1

    Pros

    The application is asking for registration (demanding ABSOLUTELY ALL PERSONAL DETAILS). But when you give them it doesn't install, giving you instead a message saying that you cannot connect to their server.

    Cons

    In two words, it is not a serious program. Nobody knows whether under the cover of a trial program, they may collect personnal details of users.

    Summary

    I suggest you not to bother even to try it.

    "Broadway was far to limited and limited for my needs."

    January 16, 2008   |   By foggy jones

    Version: Image Broadway 5.1

    Pros

    I like the easy download and the ease in deleting the item. It is fine for somebody that doesn't know there are programs that do so much more. I was hoping to get a more sophisticated program to modify graphics. But I agree, it does what it does fast and easy. I wanted more, not a complete and expensive photoshop, but not a super simplistic and automated program with very few alternatives. familiar with photoshop but cannot spring for those big buck graphics systems. praying for a serious but price competitive simplier version. Not for me, thank you.

    "Nifty Product..."

    January 14, 2006   |   By DigitalVSJ

    Version: Image Broadway 5

    Pros

    This Photo editor is incredibly easy to use and much more intuitive than any of the clunky Adobe Photoshop/ Elements/ Illustrator products.

    Cons

    At $89.95 - It's a little pricey. Really, it should be about half of the price.
